Voices from the Southern Oral History Program

Mountain Feminist
Helen Matthews Lewis, Appalachian Studies, and the Long Women's Movement
from an interview by Jessica Wilkerson
compiled and introduced by Jessica Wilkerson and David P. Cline

The "Grandmother of Appalachian Studies" reveals the parallels between the Civil Rights and Women's movements, as well as her highly ambivalent feelings about her own marriage—and much more.

"They didn't take us to jail. They pulled us out individually, and the policeman said to me, 'What would your daddy think if he saw you dancing with a nigger?'"
